A new round robin block
The CQ group I belong to has started another round robin - this one is an Orange colour study. I've never worked with orange before, especially all orange. This is my basic block, which was mailed to a lady in Wisconsin today. The ladies in this group are so talented, I'm sure they can make something lovely out of it. But I'm still intimidated by orange, and I can't picture how peach, tangerine, rust and pumpkin orange will somehow work together as one cohesive block. Maybe they will have to entirely cover the fabric with stitching and buttons!
I have some orange buttons, beads and threads ready to add to the blocks I will receive to work on. I'm going to do my very best to do lovely work, even if I am kinda scared of orange. I'll post photos as I receive blocks and work on them.
